cogage arrowThe Cogage Arrow is large aluminum and copper heat sink that I would like to think of as the Cogage Spirit X2. Like the Spirit the Arrow is a tower design that consist of dual towers and not just one. In this era of air-cooler size and weight are pretty much threw out the door in the name of better performance. The Arrow weighs in at 825 grams or one pound thirteen ounces. And measure just over six inches high from base to last aluminum fin. The design is definitely saying dual fan setup even though it only comes with one. But will the size and weight but Thermalright back at the top of the hill? We will see.

NZXT Senty II Fan ControllerThank you NZXT for sending me the Sentry II fan controller.  Fan controllers have always held a little soft spot in my book.  I started modding my computer more years ago than I can remember.  Back before you could even find a case with a window or in any color other than beige I don’t think you could even buy windows at first.  One thing I always wanted to do was build a fan controller.  At that time I only remember Sunbeam  as the only company that put out a mass produced fan controller, otherwise you built your own.  It was not too difficult, the plans and parts were out there for all, it just required a solder gun, drilling and some other light tools.  You gained total control of your fans though.  Fast forward a decade (or more) to the NZXT Sentry II, all you need is a screwdriver, tape (provided) and wire management skills (or not).  Not only do you get total control of your fans, you get touch screen technology, alarms, digital temperature displays and auto control.  All this for less money that it cost me to build my own back then.

dynatron geniusThe Genius is a cooler that you would call a big boy. A cooler that is much bigger than your typical cooler. A cooler that is aimed at defending the heat that is produced by overclocked processors. Many will say their is too many coolers to choice from already, but when you have the experience of Dynatron chances are they can improve on things. The Genius aka G950 is an 800 gram twin tower cooler that is fully capable with all the current AMD and Intel sockets.

Noctua NH-D14 Before I re-write the "About Us" page for Noctua, let's get into why we are here today. Noctua was generous enough to send over their latest cooler, the NH-D14. The D14, as we will call it, is the largest cooler we have seen from Noctua to date. It weighs in at 1240 grams with two fans attached. This alone is scary enough, but due to the SecuFirm 2 mounting system weight should be the last issue on your mind. Lets get into the review before I reveal anymore secrets on the D14.

titan skalliYou've seen the Fenrir take on the Intel i7 920. Today, you're in for more Viking-themed cooling action. That's right, the Skalli from Titan is stepping up to the plate to see if he can put our test bench CPU on ice like his bigger brother. Sure, it's not as large and doesn't bring quite as much metal to the table, but Direct Touch Technology is Direct Touch Technology. This mid-sized heat pipe tower-designed CPU cooler wants its chance to shine.

SpinQ VT That's right. We're taking a look at a new cooler, which is showing as much promise as the above coolers. This is the new version of the SpinQ, dubbed the SpinQ VT. The VT fins are not hanging at the end of the heat-pipes at a 90 degree angle, but stands tall and straight. The SpinQ is topped off by a red glow and it makes everything bright and vibrant. Lets take a look at this new cooler.

Prolimatech MegahalemsThe original Megahalems have been on the market for some time but today we will be take a look at the Rev B of the cooler. There are a few minor difference that set the first cooler apart from the second. One would be the shiny stain-less top fin and the addition of socket 1156 mounting hardware. The tower style cooler when looked at a glance would remind you of a typical tower cooler. But the center divide which is a narrow lane of open space is how it differs from the masses. Honestly, I am to anxious to get into the testing phase of this cooler just to see how well it really performs.
